Adam Lambert – Chosen as “10 Most Fascinating People of 2009” by Barbara Walters

[ad]

Well, WE all know he is fascinating (and about a 1,000 other adjectives)…but somehow when Barbara Walters says it, it has more clout!  Walters says she chose Adam because he was a “prominent name” in the entertainment industry, and he is “rather fond of the shock factor” when he performs.  Uh….yeah!  The Barbara Walters Special airs December 9th on ABC.  (Don’t worry ABC, Adam’s not performing, and I doubt he is going to grab Barbara for a lip-lock!)  Dana, Glamb #6

 

ARTICLE:

As the year comes to a close, Barbara Walters has selected her choices for her “Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2009.”

And politician Sarah Palin, songstress Lady GaGa, and newcomer Adam Lambert have all made the cut for this year’s show.

According to Walters, GaGa and Lambert were chosen because they’re two of the most prominent names in entertainment- and they’re both rather fond of the shock factor when they perform.

Meanwhile, Mrs. Palin has made quite a name for herself over the past year with her political career as well as becoming a bestselling author. The Barbara Walters special airs December 9th at 10pm EST on ABC.

    I agree with her vote. Adam is the most fascinating person I’ve ever seen. He’s good looking, he’s witty, he’s quick, he’s intelligent, he’s got a great body, he’s glittery, he’s got an amazing voice (he can sang), he’s a fashion god, he’s got great hair, he’s gentle, he’s funny, he has a great laugh, he’s innovative, he’s challenging, he’s shocking, he’s beautiful, he has a great tongue (that ones for Dianne), he has a fantastic boot & shoe collection (that ones for me), he has great taste….

    Who has all those things and more at once? Not many. Just our Adam…. and that is why we love him so….

    mwah.

    • Ladyc9543 Glamb 481 says:

      Well, as predicted by Jeannette…the STORM is here and it is a level 6. I sure hope our Adam prevails. I am worried about the music charts….

    • Dianne Hill says:

      Thanks Lisa, I agree with everything you have said, especially about the tongue.

      I hope he is at the top of Barbara’s list because nobody else should be.

    • Helen/Canada says:

      Hey Lisa
      I may be wrong, but it sounds like you have a bit of a crush on Adam, LOL! Get in line, girl!
      ~laughing~
      Hugs,
      Helen

    • I’m melting!! Hes so beautiful in this picture! Can he be even more sexy?

      Iv.

    • Lisa….”you took the words right out of my mouth……”

      Love, Yvonne (Australia)

    fascinating adam is..
    that words sometimes just could not describe adam..
    but what I know, 2009 is like a total makeover for me..
    on my life, my interest , and my pasion to music and entertainment ..
    gone are my days of old school rock and roll..
    now I am presented with the wonderful world of adam’s music, that includes mind blowing performance, and beautiful rendition of sounds of adam’s song ..
    never have I been so obsessively fantasizing of a human that I know I will never meet nor he will ever know, but adam has grasp my heart so ..

    as for the photo, he look so dashing in black ..
    like a dark, mysterious prince, all ready to break the hearts of million of maidens ..

  3. Good ol’ Barbara is so hip, and good for Adam. Adam is for sure fascinating. It’s fascinating how and when he made me become so fascinated by him. Love the way he’s been looking and sounding on CBS, so beautiful! It’s good to see him getting booked by other shows. Looking forward to seeing him on Tonight Show w/ C. O.(NBC) and on Jimmy Kimmel Live(ABC!!!!). Hope there will be many many more opportunities to see him on the tube.

    • Slick, do you have CONFIRMATION of those two appearances, and dates??/

      • 12/14 on Tonight Show and 12/17 on Jimmy Kimmel Live. As of today he’s scheduled for those dates. But things always change as you know, so check their sites. Adam is also supposed to perform on New Years Eve alive show on ABC. But, we’ll see about that one.

      • Also, I think Adam should be on Jay Leno show. Lady Gaga was awesome during the thanksgiving week, she’s got sense of humor. I have been requesting his appearance and I suggest everyone do the same if you want to see him on the tele. He needs all the exposure he can get. People need to hear and see how he performs away from the AMA. Well, IMO.

        • How do you request for these shows for Adam.

        • Thanks Slick, I will do a request too. Been wondering why he hasnt been booked on Jays show yet, being it’s out in Hollywood. Come on Jay, we want Adam!

          • Read that Adam has been cancelled from Jimmy Kimmel Show and the Rockin’ New Year’s Eve show (both ABC – their loss!!!!). Adam tweeted that he is booked for the Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien and also is going to be one Jay Leno’s show (didn’t give the date yet). He is also looking into performing elsewhere on New Year’s Eve. Loved him on the Ellen Show. Oh to get one of those hugs!!!

        • I think I saw somplace that Adam is on Jay Leno on Dec 21!!!!!

      • Here’s another place Adam is supposed to perform. But not sure if it’ll be televised. I wish I could be there. http://www.variety.com/article/VR1118010713.html?categoryid=13&cs=1&nid=2562

  4. Silvana/Argentina says:

    A great choice for sure. For me Adam IS the most fascinating person I’ve ever seen. So many wonderful aspects to his personality, besides his stunning looks, and amazing talent.

    Absolutely beautiful in that photo. He always dresses so appropiately for every occasion.

    Love you Adam.

  5. k. morgan says:

    people call into your radio station and request adam’s songs from his cd…they are all great…love sleepwalker…love fye…love broken open (so haunting)….love what do you want from me….and aftermath…buy the cd if you have not…it is amazing…

  6. k. morgan says:

    he is kind of making abc look stupid you know…i hope more artist come out and speak up on his behalf…abc basically black balled him by not giving him a chance…and he is good enough of a person to admit a mistake…you rock adam…

    • Barbara Walter Special is airing on ABC and also he recently got booked on Jimmy Kimmel on ABC. I do think GMA should rebook his concert. Who knows? They still may after some time passes. Let’s hope.

      • yep, you never know. and I believe Adam would appear too. He understands why they canc. him. He is a smart one!

  7. Speaking of Barbara WALTERS I watched THE VIEW this morning and Rod Stewart was a guest. They ask him what he thought of Adam.He said he’s good and then they ask him about Adams proformence on the AMAS.He said he didn’t see it.He said what did he do.They proceeded to tell him.I think it was Joy that said do you see anything wrong with that.He said no thats ROCK AND ROLLand things like that have been going on for years.So Rod you rock.He’s been in theR&R business for many years so he must know what he’s talking about.

    • I’ve always loved Rod — all the way back to the “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy?” days! Now I love him even more.

      Dana

      • Me too, Dana!
        Love you Rod!

        • Silvana/Argentina says:

          Me too!
          Do you remember “Bette Davis Eyes”? Loved it.

          • Helen/Canada says:

            Me too, Good ole Rod! Rock on!

            • GLAMB#474kimber says:

              I believe I was a kid at that time, & yes ” Do ya think I’m Sexy” , hell that song is just as risque w/ the word in it & “do ya want my body?” Hell yea, you rock Rod!

      • toni and Dana, me too always liked Rod. Sometimes when Adam wears his hair a certain way and turns around the back view of his head reminds me of Rods, only black hair!
        I can see Adam singing ” do ya think I’m sexy” oh do we know the answer to that!

    • Rod Steward knows what he is talking about, I don’t really know why people are making all that fuss, he is an artist, he put on a great performance, he has a beautiful voice no matter what he sings, he presents himself very well in interviews, he is a very likeable man. No matter what happens he is going to be in the music industry for many years to come.

      • puteri abdul says:

        have always love that husky sexy voice of rod..
        makes me feel good that rod, a golden veteran of rock and roll gives such comment and adulation to adam..

  8. THRILLED TO HEAR ADAM MADE BARBARA WAWA’S TOP 10 MOST IFAASCINATNG PEOPLE!!!! WHAT AN HONOR…..GOOD OLE BARBARA….CAN’T WAIT TO SEE THAT INTERVIEW…..ADAM WILL BE HIS CHARMING, CHARISMATIC, ADORABLE SELF AND BARBARA WILL MELT …..

  9. cheryl 334 says:

    SO GLAD TO SEE BARBRA has been paying attention to Adam!!!! She would, though. She always has her hand on the American pulse. She has done it again!!!!

    CONGRATULATIONS, ADAM, YOU GORGEOUS HUNK OF BURNING LOVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Your fans have know how special you were from the moment you took your first breath on AI, finally you will be shown off again by Barbra Walters!!! Remember now, she is in her 70’s and she thinks you’re hot! People of all ages KNOW they don’t come any hotter than you, my dearest darling love bug!!!!

    This has been a year of many firsts for Adam, and it’s not any where near to being over!!! Just how far is the farthest one could go???? That’s where Adam is going!!! I have already gone crazy over Adam, and that is putting it so mildly, there really are no words. Just remember last yr on NY’s Eve, he was singing at the Upright restaurant earning a bit of extra cash for himself. No idea what was ahead! He has handled it all better than anyone could have. You are one amazing human being, ADAM. You are so loved!

    peace-love-light-hope-truth-joy 4 U, ADAM.

  10. Does anyone know what the hold up is with Adams music videos on Itunes?

  11. The video is coming on itunes the 15th.I love Barbara and I read some where today that she is 80!
    Adam came third this week in the sales:first Boyle,second Bocelli.He beat Lady Gaga and Ryanna thought !

  12. I love Barbara Walters. She got it right. Who else deserve that recognition but our Adam Lambert!

    Congratulations Adam! I love you! 😉

  13. CAN’T WAIT, HE IS SO GOOD AT INTERVIEWS !!
    HE’S GONNA DO WONDERFUL, GREAT CHOICE BARBARA!!!

  14. Dana, good one :), who knows Barbara may grab Adam for a nice lip lock! I am so proud of him being on her most fascinating people show, what an honor. I’m sure he respects her very much.
    2009 has been a whirlwind of a year for Adam. So much that he will Rock Out The Year on Dick Clark’s Rockin Eve. All this goodness couldnt have happened to a nicer person.

    • GLAMB#474kimber says:

      LMAO! Mary C I hope she does! When she retires, she’ll need to go out w/ a bang! LOL!
      I feel that the Zodiac performers knew ADAM would be big. They believed in his gift. I do too.
      With today’s drug-infested music, ADAM’s music may be over the top & sexual but at least it is drug-free & classy & it’s fun! That’s why younger ones like his music , it’s dancey & entertaining. My daughter was listening to ADAM’s cd while she was doing homework. She loves ADAM.

      • kimber, so glad your dau. loves his music, way to go! Oh yes, much rather have the dancey and entertaining music than the drugfested! thts funny, Barb going out w/a bang………..come on now Adam give Barbara a nice big huggy like you did Ellen……………….

        • love2adams says:

          I think Barbara might be secretly really crazy about Adam …..picture a combination of Kimber, AdamAddict and Mary c !!!! No wonder she doesn’t want to retire…………except maybe with Adammmmm !!!!

  15. So great to see these comments. Is anyone hurting this last week like I am? I keep reading such hateful comments about Adam, and there all about the fact that he’s gay (let’s stop even pretending someone was “horrified” about ANYTHING that goes on visually in pop music these days). I’m not gay, but I am black, and the hatred brings tears to my eyes! Hate directed at ANYONE hurts EVERYONE – I’ve heard that before, but wow, do I feel the truth of that now. I can only imagine how Adam must feel. Sigh.

    • Jill,
      Big big hugs to you. I keep waiting and hoping for the day when all the hate stops. The comments on YouTube and elsewhere make me sick. I am not gay and I’m not black, but you are absolutely right. Those remarks hurt everyone.A good percentage of the people making those hateful, hurtful, disgusting remarks would NEVER have the guts to say them to the person’s face, but because nobody knows who they are, they feel free to let out all their anger and hatred. So very sad.
      I have been feeling sad over all the negative media attention about Adam’s performance. I personally don’t see what the big deal is. It makes my heart sing with joy that every interview since then has let Adam shine in a perfect light. He answers every question with grace, admits he got carried away a bit, says he’s sorry for offending, and comes away owning each interview. I’m sure this will blow over as soon as the media can jump on another public figure and drag them through the mud. Adam is a real pro, and as uncomfortable as this must be for him, he will handle it and I’m sure will consider it a learning experience.
      Barbara Walters is one very powerful lady. It’s good to see she’s still on the ball. I can’t think of anyone during 2009 who is more fascinating than Adam. What I simply don’t understand is how Barbara can be standing next to Adam Lambert (ADAM LAMBERT for Heaven sake!!!) and NOT have her arm around him!! She MUST be getting old or something! hahaha :~)
      Sudsy

  16. The more opportunities to see Adam the better!! I have not been hearing his music on the radio and I have made several requests. How bout yall?
    Even though Barbara Walters would never admit it, I would be willing to bet that our glitter baby has had the same effect on her as he does on us. Wait till she spends time with him!

  17. I hope Adam talks about his successes, because what we think about and talk about today, creates tomorrow. Disxussing negative things from the past, bring them into the present, forming tomorrow, that is why he should keep discussion of the AMA performance to the very basic minimal and focus on something postive from the past immediately to counteract it. This info in not new, every philosopher in 20 centureis has said the same thing, Dwell on the positive, not the negtative. Now, we have the whole. “The Secret” and ‘The Power of Now” saying the same thing. Yet, today, on Ellen it was the AMA and not the great new official music video FYE that was discussed and viewers who did not watch AI, will research the AMA video- and it certainly was not his golden voice that night.

    • ayleah wow! you are so right…..he should keep the ama talk to a minimum and move forward, he needs to talk about all the positive things he has done, i felt like this interview only focused on that particular performance, and for some reason i didnt like it when Ellen said ” i hope this doesnt hurt you” i dont know why ( i know she meant well)…..just didnt feel right, it all feels too much on the negative side, he needs to shake it off and continue to be fearless, it feels like now he has to watch every little move. And I dont think this whole controversy will hurt him, i truly believe that his music and talent will speak for itself and if not right now, eventually he will become a world wide MEGA STAR! ……star quality, talent, presence, creativity, innovation, uniqueness *i could go on forever* like he has is something that cannot be contained!
      He looked awesome like always, so charming, and intelligent. He definately does not need to apologize! you are your own art Adam!!!!

  18. Barbara is RIGHT. I cannot believe it! 😛 We all know that is is totally fascinating and mesmirizing, but now Barbara Walters agrees? WOAH.

    I thought that the Ellen interview was super, and Barbara will talk about the AMAs no doubnt, but it is ok. It happened.

  19. Hi, my sister and fellow Glambs – it’s Jane writing from Buenos Aires! Not sure if I posted to everyone that I would be away for 3 weeks on a trip to South America! Too expensive to get an out of country package for Email and Internet on my Blackberry so I have been having MAJOR Adam withdrawal!! Staying with friends here for a week (borrowed their laptop so I could log on here and catch up) and then going on a cruise around the Southern tip of SA ending in Santiago, Chili – trip of a lifetime! Best part? I have been in touch with Silvana/Argentina and we will be meeting for coffee on Saturday! How cool is that!?

    I think it makes perfect sense for Adam to be one of BaBa WaWa’s 10 Most Fascinating people – she always knows how to pick them and how could she NOT select our Adam after the year he has had!? I wonder if she will make him cry (which she is so famous for doing.) Like some of you noted above, I also hope that she will not spend too much time discussing the AMAs but rather finding out more about what makes Adam Adam and what his plans for the future are. (Note to self: Get to an Internet Cafe ASAP on December 10th to check out this site and watch Barbara and Adam interview!!)

    Bye for now, Glambs! I’ll check in when I can but probably won’t be posting much until I get back to Toronto on December 21st! Love to all!

    Jane

    (At least I have my music with me! I have been listening to FYE CD every night before going to sleep! Heaven!)

    • Silvana/Argentina says:

      Jane,

      • nikka/argentina says:

        Silvana anda I are sooooo happy!! Our CDs came yesterday so I will hand it to Silvana on Sat morn!!
        Love

        Nikka

    • Hi Jane, how exciting for you to be traveling, have a great time and be safe! Thank god for the CD or you would be having major withdrawal!
      Love to you too!

    • Jane, hope you’re having a good time! I think it is absolutely fab that you and Silvana are going to spend time together! Take care, travel safely and we look forward to welcoming you back! Mmmmwah – Ingrid

    • Dianne Hill says:

      Jane I remember you telling us about this trip of yours quite awhile back. I hope you have a wonderful time on that cruise and please when you meet up with Silvana please give her a huge hug from me, here in Christchurch, New Zealand. And Silvana (I know you will read this) please give Jane a huge hug from me right back. Cheers girls. Love to you both.

      • Dianne, in short, ‘give each other a huge hug from me’, ha ha – love ya Lady Di! Mmmmmmmwah

        • Silvana/Argentina says:

          I’m sure will give each other a huge hug. But will be a big four sides hug (uh?) Nikka is joining us, and Victoria, my daughter is coming too. We’ll have a great time talking all Adam!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
          And THANKS to Nikka, I’ll have my CD on Saturday. GREAT WEEKEND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Helen/Canada says:

      Jane
      I replied to your email about your trip. Glad you got in touch with Silvana. That will be fun. Have a wonderful journey. Can’t wait to hear all about it.
      Hugs
      Helen

  20. Anyone in Southern California: you can get immediate, FREE tickets to the Jimmy Kimmel outdoor concert with Adam on the 17th. Go to http://www.1iota.com (I typed link manually, so if it doesn’t hyperlink automatically, copy and paste).

    Register with site, then click in Get Tickets for Jimmy Kimmel. There MAY be an issue with people outside SoCal; I had a friend out of state who was told she’d hear back, however, when I used my SoCal zip, I received confirmation immediately! If you don’t get auto-confirmation, try deleting request and put in a 90*** zip.

    Word is, it’s better to just get tickets to concert because if you get tickets to studio show, you will be in the back for the concert. I’m seeing Adam on my b-day!!!! So excited!!!!!

  21. This is so cool. I think this may be a way of ABC apologizing to Adam too! He is THE MOST fascinating person to come about in 10 years at least! Rock on Adam.

  22. hi all! just read all these posts. agree with everyone re: ADAM. have a couple of responses to some gals. first to silvana. the song “BETTY DAVIS EYES” is by kim carnes, not rod stewart. she had that same kind of raspy voice. also want to say have fun with jane! to candace, i, too, have not been hearing adam on radio. i keep requesting to no avail. (i’m in detroit area). and to michelle, i thought/felt the exact same way about that comment that ellen made. she was great with adam except for that one thing. well, that’s all i wanted to say here. looking forward to all things ADAM in december. it will be like early christmas presents!! ESPECIALLY THE BW INTERVIEW!! WOOWOO!!

  23. racine, i’m pretty sure the bw list of 10 was already decided before ama’s. maybe even the interview was already in the can. seems like they were promoting the 10 most fascinating show even before ama’s aired. i could be wrong, but i don’t think so. so i don’t know if it’s a make up by abc. now, if they reinvite adam to gma, THAT would be a make up!! i just hope he’s still gonna be on dick clark’s new years rockin’ eve!

  24. AL1877

    Thanks for the info, and either way he is THE MOST fascinating of 2009!

  25. Adam is really an adorable , handsome boy .
    I wish he had been a man.
    But still like to date him.

  26. Greetings :

    Of COURSE, Adam Lambert is one of the 10 Most fascinating People of 2009 —
    IS THE SKY BLUE (as blue as Adam’s eyes)
    IS THE NIGHT BLACK (AS BLACK AS THE DARKER SIDE OF ADAM’S PERSONA)
    What we have here is a failure to Communicate. A lot of people are judging Adam as that “Adam IS as Adam DOES” – NOT SO – no, No, NO ! ADAM IS SO FABULOUS BECAUSE ADAM IS AN INTPRETOR OF ART / MUSIC / DANCING / ACTING – HE IS UNLIKE ANYONE ELSE WE HAVE EVER SEEN. HE IS SO ANDROYGENOUS AND COMELION-LiKE – HE APPEALS TO EVERYONE – EVEN THOSE WHO SIT IN JUDGMENT OF HIM – BAD NEWS FOR YOU !! JUST SIT BACK AND ENJOY THE SHOWS PEOPLE – YOU NEVER GET THE SAME THING TWICE WITH ADAM. EACH SHOW KNOCKS YOUR SOCKS OFF. JUST THE SHUT THE BUZZ UP AND WATCH AND LISTEN, PLEASE, SO THE REST OF US CAN ENJOY HIM OR JUST LEAVE – GET UP AND WALK OUT !! BUT, YOU’LL BE SORRRRRY !
    Regards, Sharie K

  27. just listened to his cd and did not like it all singing not good and too much back noise he screams too much not good

  28. This is you best look. Please keep your hair down, you already have the height !
